SWIMMERS at Windsor Leisure Centre can now add to their fun by using a two-lane talking slide.

The new slide, which opened to users of the centre in Stovell Road earlier this week, counts down to the start of your ride and swimmers can race their friends or family.

Cllr Samantha Rayner, lead member for culture, communities and Windsor launched the slide, saying: “The increased capacity will mean that more of our leisure centre users will be able to enjoy a ride on the slide, as well as some good old-fashioned competition between slide users.

“The slide has been funded by the Royal Borough’s capital programme and forms part of the council’s continued commitment to investing in health and well-being at our much loved and used leisure centre.

“It has already proven a hit with half term swimmers.”

The slide adds to the existing leisure equipment at the pool which includes the popular water rapids, wave machine, jet sprays, family slide, monsoon slide and cyclone slide.

Further investment Windsor Leisure centre pool is planned for later this year.
